Pictures as promised from the atoll Manihi and the pearl farm tour.
Cathy ( from Tarun) and I on a pass through the reef in Manihi, I wouldn't want to try this on in Cat's-Paw IV!!LLooking for the very beginnings of the oysters out in the water. Barry on the dock leading to the building where the oysters and hopefully pearls are harvested.

Our guide examining the pearls to figure out thier quality.

Aren't they beautiful.

Looking in the pass into Manihi, thank goodness for GPS and good cruising guides. A boat that came in a couple of days before us touched bottom twice on the way in!!
